German Court Rules Hangovers Are An “Illness”

 

Hangovers are now officially an “illness.” That’s according to a court in Germany, at least. It all stemmed from a hearing involving a firm that sells hangover “cures.” The unnamed company was accused of “making illegal health claims about its anti-hangover shots and powders.”

According to German law, “food products, including drinks, cannot be marketed as being able to prevent or treat illnesses.” Then, the court said “illnesses” can include “small or temporary changes to the body’s normal state.” That would include “disruptions” like “tiredness, nausea, and headaches.” BOOM.

Anyone who’s ever had a good hangover knows those three are among the classic “symptoms.” So, even though it’s temporary, a hangover’s still an “illness” and the company therefore can’t claim their shots and powders can be a “cure.” So…there you have it…a hangover is now legally an “illness.” But yeah – only in Germany. So good luck getting your boss to give the okay on that one next time you have a long weekend that ran even longer. << see audio to right >>
